Autographs from Knapp, Seranthony & Neris; Chachi Cards in the Wild

Prior to making our way to Citizens Bank Park for Photo Night with the entire family, Doug and I made the trip on Saturday afternoon to Bill's Sports Cards & Memorabilia on Rhawn Street for a trio of current Phillies signing autographs.  We already had autographs of Andrew Knapp, Seranthony Dominguez and Hector Neris in our 2019 collections, but the price was reasonable ($15 per autograph) and we wanted to spend some time browsing through Bill's.

The store was holding a Christmas in July sale, and all signed 8 x 10 photos were 50% off.  Normally, I don't buy signed 8 x 10s for my collection, as I prefer the signed 4 x 6 photo cards, but I couldn't resist buying a few photos once Doug came across a few printed and blown up vintage Chachi cards!  It's always cool to see a Chachi card in the wild, and coming across several examples of signed Chachi cards is even better.  Doug also added an autographed photo of Tony Taylor to replace the empty spot on his wall since he had unceremoniously removed his signed Odubel Herrera photograph.

The three Phillies were pleasant enough and each posed for a photo with Doug.  We vowed to visit the store again soon, and hopefully by then they've restocked their supply of signed jumbo Chachi cards.
